What is Parallelism, and What is its Significance on a Resume?
Writing in parallel makes your resume easier to read and understand…
- Don’t mix job titles with job functions.
- Use same part of speech when you describe your jobs. It is usually best to use verbs. Don’t mix nouns and verbs.
- Be consistent with verb forms for each listing (all ‘-ed’ verbs or all ‘-ing’ verbs, but not a mixture of the two).
